Red face DAWN April 2013 Repo cruise photos/bios



Steve (Paradise Sailor) and I (Got Tequila) are from Maine. We're loyal to NCL, and cruise as often as we can. We usually out of NYC during the Winter Months. Steve manages a Lobster Fishing Co-op...and I take care of everything else. We both have grown children, and Steve has 2 grand daughters. We always seem to have a project or two going on around the house during the Winter months while Steve has time off. I enjoy landscaping, gardening, and scrapbooking. Steve enjoys building model boats and trucks when he has any spare time.

6th cruise - TA from Dover to Tampa, with stops at Ponta Delgada and Miami - on NCL Star, Oct. 6, 2015



5th cruise - PORTS OF CALL Embark Tampa; Roatan, Bay Islands (Honduras); Belize City (Belize); Costa Maya (Mexico); Cozumel (Mexico); Disembark Tampa - on NCL Dawn, Mar. 16, 2014



4th cruise was Tampa - Boston on NCL Dawn, Apr. 21, 2013 - had a mini-suite and loved it! Also joined by my wife's best friend and her husband (they had a balcony and loved it!)
3rd cruise was Boston - New Orleans on NCL Spirit, Oct. 23, 2010 - had a balcony and loved it! Made a lot of friends here and on the cruise and can't wait to do it again!
2nd cruise was Boston - Bermuda RT on NCL Majesty, August 28, 2005 - had a room right by the casino which we hated because of the noise and smell of smoke. We loved the rest of the cruise, though!
1993 (or 1995, I forget which) - June - First cruise was on Regency Rainbow out of St. Pete, FL - 5 days, SP - Cancun/Cozumel - Key West - SP - loved it, even though we sailed through a tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico!

We are Anna (luvs2shop) and Rich (luvslv) from northern Illinois. We have both retired. Our four children have given us seven grandchildren so far. Grandson number six is due in November so the grandaughters are seriously outnumbered. In our spare time we like to travel, fish, bike, garden and of course spend time with the kids. We also play games on Facebook and POGO.

Cruise Critic doesn't allow Facebook cruise groups anymore, but it was nice. I love Facebook to play games and post pictures and chat!
